Read in November, 2008

It's hard to read this book today with the dated and incorrect predictions about technology. It's not really the author's fault--who could know? But still: most civilians don't have cellphones, the idea of "travelling through a network in VR" is laughable, and the government agents have a device called a "virgil" which is similar to a Blackberry, but far less powerful.

The book also seems to have product placement throughout (Dodge Viper, Dodge Neon, Chrysler Prowler), something I thought was the domain of movies and TV. And if I'm wrong, and these products were not the result paid placement, then the author seriously has a Dodge fetish.
